Rice-A-Roni Review & Giveaway




********CONTEST NOW CLOSED********


Remember THIS POST about Kathryn Sansone and Rice-A-Roni? Well, Rice-A-Roni has introduced a new flavor and I got to review it! Their new Italian Creamy Garlic (rice in a creamy garlic and herb sauce) is absolutely delicious! Being a fan of “One Pot” Meals I used the suggestions for add-ins on the back of the box and added in frozen asparagus (they called for frozen broccoli) and chicken. The family loved it and even my toddler asked for seconds!

Want to try it for yourself? They sent me extra and I am giving away 2 boxes each to 2 winners!

To Enter:

1. Visit the Rice-A-Roni website and leave me a comment letting me know your favorite rice or pasta flavor.

Extra Entries:

2. Follow my blog or subscribe by email or RSS feed and leave me a separate comment letting me know you did so. If you subscribe by email, don’t forget to activate your email subscription (Feedburner will send you an activation email) so your entry will count!
3. Follow me on Twitter (jadco123) and tweet about this giveaway. Leave me another separate comment letting me know your Twitter name, so I can check.
4. Blog about this giveaway with a link back to my site and leave another separate comment here with the URL so I can check it out.

So there are four ways to enter and there are 2 winners. Not bad odds!!! This giveaway ends on 2/6/09 at midnight EST. I will draw the winners’ names on 2/7/09 and contact them by email. They will have 2 days to contact me back with their mailing addresses or I will choose a runner up. This giveaway is open only to those with shipping addresses in the US. This Giveaway is a part of the Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival.

Good luck!!!

I like the Beef and use it with some add-ins to make red beans and rice with tomatoes. I just add in a teaspoon of chili powder, a can of red beans and a can of diced tomatoes to make it. I just also heard of a friend replacing 1/3 of the water with apple juice and adding in pieces of left over roast with celery and onions to it for a casserole dish, so I might try it that way some night too.

I like the chicken broccoli rice-a-roni flavor. A few years ago I took the Thai Chicken Skillet recipe off the box and it is a family favorite. I am a big fan of starting with Rice-a-roni and adding chicken and veggies! A weekly staple!

There isn't a Rice-A-Roni I don't like!! I guess one of my faves would be the garlic and olive oil vermicelli. I LOVE Rice-A-Roni because you can mix in all kinds of stuff and make them different everytime...but yet they're still great "as is"!
